    I am having trouble drilling down into the .PBF file in order to get into a folder and find an individual file for restore.

    I have gone to >Tools>FTW and located the .PBF file and double clicked it, but no further expansion occurs, so I can't get to the file I need - any thoughts?

    Hi,

    It works for me - I just click the little cross next to the .PBF

    Can you do it with the Restore Wizard?

    Otherwise, you could verify the Arc integrity. I think that will only detect errors if "Control archive Integrity" was ticked -under the Backup image options tab - before creating the image - ( On mine, it is it is ticked by default.)

    Well the problem is there is no + sign next to the .PBF file - like this:

    Are you using the newer build, 10505?

    No I am using Version 9 build 7267 (13.12.08 ), which although older I thought was able to restore individual files from imaged backups in the same way that Acronis and DriveImage are able to. Perhaps I have this wrong?

    Try drilling into the .000 file if you have them. When you backup multiple partitions, you have a complex archive and each partition is represent by a .000 file. Drilling the PBF file in this case will not open the archives.

    For simplicity, you might want to disable image splitting to deal with fewer files.

    Thamks for the lead-in. I hunted for the .000 files but there are none, so I went back to the .PBF files and noticed there were img_0_*.PBF and img_1_*.PBF files etc.

    So I double clicked on these and up came the underlying file structures. C drive was the "img_0_" set and D drive was "img_1_" set and so on.

    Thanks for your help.
